Bits per second (in short, bps) refers to the speed at which data transfer is measured.
Bits per second or bps is generally used to measure the speed of information through a high speed phone lines or modems.
Important - Bytes per second are denoted as Bps. Please notice the capital B. Small b i.e., bps stands for bits per second.
Here the table given below describes both the form of bps, i.e., bps and Bps:
|bps||bits per second|
|Bps||Bytes per second|
Here is another table describes different forms of bps:
|The rate of a thousand bits per second||kbps||kilo bits per second||Small k in kbps|
|A rate of a thousand bytes per second||Kbps||Kilo bytes per second||Capital K in Kbps|
|A rate of a million bits per second||mbps||mega bits per second||Small m in mbps|
|A rate of a million bytes per second||Mbps||Mega bytes per second||Capital M in Mbps|
